font size    

Six months after Gen. Surayud Chulanont was appointed prime minister of Thailand's interim government following last September's coup, the popularity of the government remains to be considerably declining, according to a latest opinion poll released on Monday.

According to a Bangkok University poll, 32 percent of 1,171 respondents said life remains unchanged under the Surayud administration during the past six months, while 30 percent said the situation has gone from bad to worse and only 16.7 percent believed the overall political and economic landscape has improved.

Out of 10 points, the Surayud government obtained only 4.5 points for its current performance and only 5.2 points for the performances over the last three months, according to the Bangkok Poll.

The poll has also found Culture Minister Khaisri Sri-arun to be the most popular member of cabinet, followed by Prime Minister Surayud and Tourism and Sports Minister Suwit Yodmanee.

The poll has found Prime Minister's Office Minister Prasit Kovilaikool as the least popular minister, followed by Prime Minister's Office Minister Thiraphat Serirangsan and Labor Minister Apai Chandanachulaka, the official Thai News Agency reported.

Besides Prasit and Apai, Science and Technology Minister Yongyuth Yuthavong has been found as the least known minister.
